it is a healthy dialogue where everyone gets a chance to express themselves. .9 of representation in america for people to give their point of view. they feel they have been heard, even if they don't get their entire way. most people, are willing to comprise a little bit. that is what we have to have here, unfortunate tax increases to balance lance our budget and unfortunately entitlement reforms particularly on health care side so we don't have the debt as far as eye can see. hopefully the speaker and president will get there. the solution is pretty straightforward. sandra: it isn't straightforward because we have so much disagreement. maybe it is harsh to call it as infighting maybe tension. more than 100 conservative leaders including former presidential candidate rick santorum, saying gop congressman will be targeted if they make concession on tax hikes. that sound like tension to me. >> a lot of tension. both extremes are trying to set their goalposts to make it impossible for speaker boehner and president obama to negotiate. my words to my colleagues are, get over yourselves. there has

. it would be an appropriate fit. >> bill: no matter what they said in 2004, he is a genuine america war hero. i want to throw that in here. your article is interesting in "national journal." a secretary john kerry either state or defense would elevate climate issues. why do you say that? >> it's interesting, i don't know if a lot of people realize if a lot of americans realize that climate change is an issue that john kerry is extremely passionate about. as a foreign policy and national security issue. and i think a lot of democrats especially on the liberal end of the spectrum care about climate change and talk about it. john kerry has been working sort of, you know, behind the scenes on climate change issues for 20 years. he went to -- he attended the first big u.n. climate summit in rio de janeiro in 1992. this is an issue he works on with his wife, teresa heinz kerry. he was the author of a major senate climate change bill. he's gone to a lot of the u.n. summits and worked behind the scenes and in 2009 in copenhagen

-- the top 2% of earners in america are not going to have their tax cuts extended. >> the two sides have been swapping proposals this week but insiders say they didn't view the last white house plan as a serious counteroffer so they resent their original proposal to the president. the problem isn't just there's a big gulf between the two sides, they don't understand how to negotiate with each other. you'd think they might have figured out how to communicate. that hasn't happened. correctly fearing the republicans were insulted by that offer, the phone call the president had with boehner on tuesday night was an attempt to save the talks and assure boehner that the white house wasn't trying to be insulting with their offer and it was a tense conversation. so when it comes to the sticking point, the president has a big edge on this as far as the public is concerned, particularly on taxes and in our poll 76% said they'd be willing to accept higher rates on the wealthy, including 61% of republicans and it was tax rates. that's what we asked in our question, folks. perhaps trying to be sure they do
businesses at a time when we're expecting small businesses to be the engine of job creation in america. ernst & young made it clear if we do what the president is asking for, some 700,000 jobs would be at risk. it's simple as that. >> [inaudible]. >> well, we really shouldn't be. i argued going back to the spring this issue had to be dealt with. that's why in may the house moved a bill to replace the sequester with other cuts in mandatory spending. that is why in july the house passed a bill to expend -- extend all the current tax rates. i've been pushing all year for us to address this problem. but here, we are, at the 11th hour around the president still isn't serious about dealing with this issue right here. it is this issue, spending! now you go back, want to talk about polling, most americans would agree that spending is a much bigger problem than raising taxes. they want us to deal with this in a responsible way. >> problem with congress? my point, whatever the issue is takes this long each year in december to get these things done. >> unfortunately that is the case that we're dealing w
managing editor rona. with christmas less than two weeks away it's seeming more likely that america will see santa claus before it sees a deal on the fiscal cliff. the house majority and minority leaders issued a clear message today and yesterday don't book your plane tickets. >> we don't know if we would be home for the rest of hanukkah or christmas. let's really get real about this if we're going to have a solution, and let's stay here and sit at that table. >> we've said we're committed to staying here. we're going to stay here right up until christmas eve throughout the time and period before the new year. >> there are no talks scheduled today between the president and house speaker boehner. meanwhile, fed chairman ben bernanke, the man who coined the term fiscal cliff, urgently warned that just approaching the edge is causing damage. >> why is it that consumer confidence dropped so sharply this week? why is it that small business confidence dropped so sharply? why are the markets volatile, even though we're not yet even reached the point of the fiscal cliff potentially kicking

it the way america said they want it to be done. they've been well-educated. not that other well educated people have not been subjected to vicious recriminations, but there's a resonant theme here about highly intelligent black people and some unconscious refusal to acknowledge their legitimacy. i mean, the questioning of especially president obama's intelligence and susan rice's intelligence resonates very powerfully here and as jonathan halter did, i could give you history after history after history of the cases in which african-american people of prominence have been questioned, brought to the bar of public concern as to the legitimacy of their intelligence and yet all along proving they are more than superior to those who oppose them. >> wasn't the problem here additionally made more difficult after david petraeus went before the committee and said, terrorism was involved and appeared to contradict what susan rice had said, and at that point her position became more difficult, didn't it? >> and unten beableuntenable. >> it was difficult all along. and there was a good chance all alo

of constitutionality, the integrity of the government, the balance of powers. we're standing up for america. i mean, you could build a heck of a story saying you're going to defie an imperial president with his -- spit while you say it, ultimate mate -- ultimatum. >> the republicans can say we came up with the compromise. we did the thing we didn't want to do offering tax increases, whether it's deduction closing or rate hikes, so the republicans have clearly moved, and i think that somehow they got to show that to the public and that it is spending that the democrats will not come back with. >> one other issues neither side talked about, the central issue in america, jobs, growth, stimulating a more abun adapt -- abundant economy. bottom line, both sides missed it. lou: missed it, and frankly, an introduction to a head wind of $260 billion taxes because of obamacare, and then the fiscal cliff. susan, thank you very much. we appreciate it, michael. thank you, doug. great to have you with us. now for your comments,
of the year. it's affecting america today. well, even santa claus is upset. santa claus showed up on capitol hill wednesday, urging congress and the white house to strike a deal to avoid the looming fiscal cliff before christmas. >> it's discouraging that our elected leadership in congress can't come together to get the job done for the american people. >> reporter: both sides say it's putting a damper on the holidays. >> i think it's going to be extremely difficult to get it done before christmas. ? . >> in anticipation, there is no agreement. congressional leaders told lawmakers not to make holiday travel plans. >> we're going to stay here right up until christmas eve, throughout the time and period before the new year because we want to make sure that we resolve this in an acceptable way for the american people. >> president obama and house speaker john boehner continue to talk. >> but we've got serious differences. >> those differences are already affecting americans. fed chairman ben bernanke says just the threat of the fiscal cliff is dragging down the economy. >> it's already affectin

,000 is not rich in america today. the question will come down to what you get into return? i like to think of it as small claims court. if everyone goes away happy, the deal is probably good. speaker boehner was probably conciliatory. now it is up to the president to come and talk about spending cuts he is willing to make. >> the american people want those now. i think that we are all just ready to say let's do something. we don't care what it is anymore. we just want resolutions. we have a good deal here. a bad deal can be really bad and we will be stuck with it for a long time. >> absolutely. if the deal is bad for america, it is not for everyone. it is bad for the world. the markets are now waiting for a decision to be made. it could be bad for the marketplace. we have to make decisions on entitlement and spending and the real cost of our economic rows. in january, we have to be talking about raising the debt ceiling. the one you said it, spending and is our problem. we have so many obligations that there is no room for error anymore. these obligations need to be part of the process. >>

by basically manipulating the political environment in america. they don't give a damn about workers. they want union dues to go away so the infrastructure just dries up. if labor is taken way from the democrats, barack obama might not be in the white house. you can just ask karl rove. >> they lost 612,000 union members in 2010 alone. now think about it. every one of the 612,000 people had union dues going into the political coffers of their union to spend on politics. so yeah, you keep having couple 100,000 people each year, if a half million people leave the labor movement every year, and pretty soon you start having a crimp in the political budgets of these unions, it has a direct effect on the presidential. >> let's crimp the political budgets throughout, and the way we can do that is pass a right-to-work law that will tell union members that they real hi don't have to pay dues. that way they're not going to pay them, and that way it's going to reduce their resources even more. it's going to shake the foundations of the democrats even more. the koch brothers aring why is is making all the p
